§ Mr. Deakins
asked the Prime Minister, pursuant to her reply of 26 March, Official Report, column 493, if it remains Her Majesty's Government's policy to oppose the inclusion in EEC budgets of special extra provisions for the cost of the past problems; and if she will make a statement.
§ The Prime Minister
Yes. The Government will continue to argue against special extra provision in the EC budget for the so-called cost of the past problem. The Government voted in favour of the Council's draft budget for 1987, which respects the budget discipline limits.
